Funny how her reflection magically appears out of nowhere. tongue

Yeah. It's faded in pretty quick.



BTW, I love the commitment to the mushroom cloud gag. This is after the commercial break("And you are outta here!") and after the Professor and Leela's lengthy chilli dog ordering process.

At the beginning of A Farewell to Arms, the sales stand goes from sunglasses $8, to umbrellas $8, to sunglasses $9. However, I had to use the zoom feature on our DVD player to be able to read the sign. We could hear the "change over" sound but neither my husband nor I could tell what it was without magnifying it by four. Was the gag that difficult to read on a larger screen or maybe an HD one? I hope that the jokes don't get too high-resolution dependent or I won't be able to see them on my ancient TV set. Then I'll miss the awesome "little things" that make it so fun to watch.

It was easy to see, and I watched a pixelated version on the computer. Man, your tv must be very small.

I love the parts they pay special attention to when it's not really required. Also background puns like in Law and Oracle where they have the sign out the front of the police station saying different things and gags.

So, because Shut In provided such an insightful commentary, I re-watched BwaBB. I really liked it so much better during this second viewing. And there were a couple of "background" things that tickled me. First, what the heck is this?



It cracked me up so much, even though I don't know what this creature is. The way it's curled around that sunken ship reminds me of my sweet little Eskimo Spitz curled up in her bed. That's from the scene where Calculon and Bender are dueling.

And then the scene towards the beginning of the movie, when the Professor wants to test something on the giant medium-sized ant. When the Professor starts talking about cotton candy and Fry's blood on pancakes, the ant's mandible thingies starts moves around, like the equivalent of a dog licking its chops.

You really think she'd keep it on when they're in 1947? Would make the get-up kind of pointless.

I don't think that happened yet.  I will have to double check.

After fast forwarding using Netflix I can say that the scene outside of Fry's grandma's house took place before the Professor said f*ck it.

You got to love Netflix.

I allways thought that professor was part of the Bender's magic trick in Jurassic Bark.



But it seems there was just fake legs or something.

"...9-10, fire."

Bin away. But I'm back, baby!


Although it's a little rushed, I love that they had him look up and blink as if he was disturbed from his sleep. This entire bit was great in fact, especially when the surviving wart floats towards the floor. If it isn't obvious, it's Adlai in the lab coat. Across the Bender-made chasm there's a guy just about to use the toilet or just finishing up. Above him is another guy sitting at his half desk left.

Well she did have it on when the Professor and Leela were peeping on Fry and his Grandma the morning after they did the nasty.

I think the general rule is that characters are presented in their default look unless there's a reason for a change. In the earlier scenes, the vintage-wear makes it obvious that the Professor and Leela were trying to blend in. Here, the point is to reveal Fry's misguided doodling and the costumes would have been a little redundant and possibly distracting. I'm guessing part of the reason the conversation took place in the backyard was the suggestion that Leela and the Professor were sneaking around across some backyards. Just my guess.

(edit: Maybe it's not the backyard. Not sure now.)

You forget, he has a magical chest cavity. Also, loosen up, Amy tongue

You can always tell it's the Professor's feet by the 3 wrinkles above each ankle. It's part of his character design. Or any geezer character, I'm pretty sure.

That is a gorgeous night scene.  You can get a similar moon effect photographically, by getting quite a ways back from your subject and using a telephoto lens.  Of course it won't really have the same depth as the scene above.  Hmm, I think that would make nice wallpaper on my workstation at the office smile

Yeah, I think it's because they needed to have Bender come out of the other one. My guess is it would've been way more trouble than it was worth to be technically accurate with this scene. I'm sure production costs balloon quickly and they have to cut some corners in order to keep up with all the crap that Fox chooses NOT to cancel tongue

Sunset is always the magic hour for snapping photos, and I'm pleased that the animators captured the warm, relaxing tones of that time of day.

Also, I never noticed what looks like electrical transformers behind the PE building.

There are lots of gorgeous scenes in futurama, especially sundown as you said Sparkybarky.  How about we collect all of them here, or in a different thread? Just to look at(or perhaps find a new wallpaper roll eyes )

Eternium:

That screen grab is so cool. It almost portrays Bender as a cold-hearted murderer the way the shot is set up and how the hunts master is cowering on the ground. If I can get that shot without the CC watermark, then I think I have  a new desktop background. smile

The salmon scene appears reminiscent of the scene in parasites lost when they're depicted as otters. I would framegrab for comparison but I am without my dvds at this current time (and gotfuturama.com doens't have the right frames) - maybe on Monday ;D
